Yeah- that'd be a good idea- maybe someone with CAD or Illustrator could do up an SVG?

Some years ago I've downloaded a (free) program that will PRINT almost ANY SHAPE using this tecnique, using your printer and a standard A4 paper to be fold and cut. Very very neat for unusual postards & letters! ciao! Mario

If you reversed all the creases, wouldn't it just be a flat piece of paper again?
